Join Manx National Heritage and the Seaside Heritage Network for an online seminar on the rich, yet often overlooked, Celtic seaside heritage of the British Isles.

The first stop will take in the delights of the Isle of Man, with Katie King, Curator of Art and Social History at Manx National Heritage, providing fascinating insights into the origins and development of Manx seaside resorts.

Next, we’ll be hopping over to the Scottish coast with Eric Simpson, author of ‘Going on Holiday’ and ‘Wish You Were Still Here: The Scottish Seaside Holiday’, who will be considering the distinctive way in which Scotland’s seaside resorts developed.

The final destination on our virtual tour of the Celtic seaside will be the North Wales Coast, with Avril Wayte, Chair of the Friends of Bangor Garth Pier, who will be sharing with us how the Bangor community led the successful revitalisation of this much-loved pier.

The seminar will take place ONLINE ONLY on Wednesday 15th May from 16.30 to 17.30 and will be delivered via Zoom. Book your FREE space here: https://seasideheritage.org.uk/events/upcoming-events/the-celtic-seaside
